Destination:- Bazouges-sur-le-loir

3 hours drive, 142 miles and €24 tolls.

CAMPING-CAR PARK area of Bazouges-Cré-sur-Loir, Le Vieux Pont – Sarthe

We last visited this lovely site back in March 2018 and once again we were the only ones there.

We filled up on arrival as usual and I took advantage of the big service area to give the van a quick wash before parking up. The river was quite high so some of the site was cordoned off for safety reasons.

We knew the area from our last visit so after parking up and a quick snack we decided to have a wander over the bridge into town. Mainly to visit the lovely bakery/cake shop.

After a quick stroll around we we got our essentials then headed back to the van for a relaxing evening.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
